This is a completely unique, architect-designed 2 bedroomed wooden cabin with magnificent outdoor spaces in Hout Bay. It is intended to carry a small footprint and be experienced as a cabin perched in the natural surroundings of mountains and fynbos.


The house comprises a bedroom and en suite bathroom, along with a kitchen, scullery, dining room, lounge and large outdoor deck. Upstairs is the main bedroom en suite and an open mezzanine chill area with work-from-home office and 2 additional beds organised in a bunk bed style.


Bedroom: 1 | Queen Bed en-suite

Bedroom: 2 | (mezzanine level) | Queen Bed & Bunk Beds en-suite


Sentinel guests have access to the entire cabin, the deck, the eco-pool and the garden seating area, as well as to a parking bay.

The property boasts external cameras, linked alarm system and electric fencing all around as well as remote-controlled smart access. The house itself is very secure, with a solid wooden front door, steel sliding doors and shatterproof extra thick glass. Solid wooden bedroom doors have been reinforced internally with steel and wooden shutters in the bedroom are lockable so you can sleep with the doors open.


There is direct access to the Sandy Bay Dunes Nature Reserve via a back gate on the property, where guests can walk about 200m up the hill, onto the sand dunes and down to Sandy Bay and across to Llundudno along the hiking paths, as well as onto the Shipwreck Trail. The top of the dunes are popular with groups and families for picnics. Please look out for the sign to the beach, follow the path behind the main house (not by the deck and pool) and respect our privacy.


Wifi: 500MB download / 250MB upload) included.

Bathroom and kitchen basics available. A french press (plunger) is available for coffee. 

Self check-in with lockbox if personal check in is not available.

Unfortunately pets are not welcome. The owners have dogs of their own.

Please respect other residents/guests on the property and their privacy. Except for the pod and personal deck, the rest of the garden is not for guest use. However, please feel free to ask us if you would like to try anything out of our kitchen garden.


If you’re a surfer, Sandy Bay and Llundudno are both in walking distance.

If you’re a family with kids and dogs, welcome to heaven.

This place is a paradise for hikers, trail runners and cyclists, and even the less fit can enjoy an almost flat walk (from the top of the dunes) along the contour of the mountain, with incredible views across to Camps Bay, the 12Apostles and Lions Head. This location literally cannot be beaten.
